Service password-recovery not in cli

Hello again!!

:

Is there a reason the "[no] service password-recovery" command is not available in the list of IOS commands?

:

I've looked at IOS 12.4- 15.x (IPBase through Advanced IP services) on the 2800 series routers.

The Cisco documtation states this command is available via CLI.

Back-in-the-day, hidden IOS commands carried all the talk and of course Cisco stated hidden commands were not supported.

:

The command works as expected on IOS 12.4 through 15.x BUT  just need to ensure MGT understands the resons why the command does not show itself.
